    I was hoping someone would've said it before me :p . I know not why people get the idea confused so often (particularly in quoting it from the bible).

    Sorry, I didn't read the entire thread, but I'm skipping to your question(OP).

    No, it's not the money, it's human greed.

    Money is not an evil, it is a cognitive approximation/extrapolation of "exchange value". It's all about probabilities n shit

    money has this magical ability to force people to work against their will.
    And people lose it to the economy as fast as they earn it, hence it has become evil.
    The fear of poverty turns people into slaves of money.

    Wrong. People consume because they are living creatures. They need food to eat and a place to live, which have costs. If money did not exist, they would have to barter for those things. Regardless of the circumstances, they would STILL have to work "against their will". The rule is pretty much the same for all life on this planet, work or die. That has nothing to do with money, capitalism, or any other concept you've been reading propaganda about lately.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    If no one worked to produce goods, where will they get stuff to consume?

    It is not a creation.

    Man does not create.
    God does.

    If God is all good how does something evil come from him?

    Inanimate objects cannot be moral agents.

    And if you don't care for money, you're free to not own any.

    Under those circumstances, I don't see the issue.

    How can it be evil? It doesn't have a soul.
